Plastic

Did you know that one tonne of waste plastic, if recycled; is enough to produce 120,000 supermarket carrier bags or 20,000 two litre drinks bottles?

The disposal method of plastic products contributes significantly to their environmental impact. Most plastics take a long time to biodegrade, often several hundred years once they have been land filled. With more and more plastics products, particularly plastics packaging, being disposed of so soon after their purchase, the landfill space required by plastics waste is a growing concern.

Currently 80% of post-consumer plastic waste is sent to landfill, 8% is incinerated and only 7% is recycled. At WMS we can offer an alternative to landfill. With over fifty different grades of plastic available in the UK, why not let the experts advise you on the best way to maximise your profit potential from unwanted plastic and polythene. We have many years experience in the grading, processing and trading of waste plastics and through our network of plastic waste merchants, we can ensure that all recyclable material can be removed from the waste stream. By participating in the recycling process you will strengthen and build the recycling industry whilst also helping to improve the environment in which we live.

WMS can offer grading advice and collection services on a very wide and diverse range of plastic films and hard grade plastics.

We can arrange the most suitable collection method to suit your material, this includes loose hard plastics and baled film in various sizes.

Laboratory analysis is available for more specialist materials.
